GM announced growth plans in India and China and job cuts in Belgium while underlining plans to continue shifting resources to China and India and away from tougher US and Western European markets, the Wall Street Journal reported. The world's largest automaker has to deal with chronic losses in North American auto operations and could be eclipsed by Toyota Motor Corp in its own backyard. The company said it plans to double production capacity at major Chinese factories by 2010. During a visit to India, Chief Executive Rick Wagoner also told the newspaper GM has growth plans there. Meanwhile, the company announced 1,400 job cuts in Belgium. The costs of downsizing in major markets have caused US$12 billion in losses for the automotive giant in the last two years.
